Antonio Conte In Praise Of Alvaro Morata

Antonio Conte In Praise Of Alvaro Morata

Antonio Conte was attending his pre-match press conference ahead of Saturdays game at Stoke City as Diego Costa stepped onto the tarmac at Madrid`s Barajas airport. Having spoken about Costa, the manager turned his attention to the man who has replaced him. The saying chalk and cheese comes to mind,

`I like him because he`s a complete player and also he has a lot of room to improve in every situation, tactical, physical, technical aspect, he`s very committed, his behaviour is always fantastic, He is a very polite player, I like this, also I like that he`s a good finisher, he 'feels` the goal in every moment, he`s very good and understanding which is the best position in the box to receive the ball, to understand where the ball is going."

Those quotes courtesy of Chief football correspondent at The Telegraph Jason Burt. The sourced article goes on to ask what Conte meant when he called the Spanish striker polite,

`He`s a really good guy … It means if you have a daughter you`d be open to have this type of person with your daughter, to marry your daughter! A really good guy, a polite person.`

Whether Conte was making a direct comparison with Costa can only be surmised, but it`s clear who the Italian would sooner be working with.
